LOOK: 2 Filipino visual artists part of NBA’s Vince Carter tribute
MANILA, Philippines — Paying homage to Vince Carter, the NBA recently launched a website dedicated to the basketball legend, who formally retired last June 25 after a 22-year career—the longest in league history.
The tribute site also features a print collection designed by 15 visual artists from all over the world, including Filipinos Jayson Atienza and AJ Dimarucot.
The graphic designs, each uniquely executed, are free to download in the website.
Carter was selected fifth overall in the 1998 NBA Draft and quickly captivated the basketball world with his out-of-this-world athleticism and dazzling dunks.
He played his first seven seasons with the Toronto Raptors before suiting up for seven other teams until officially hanging up his sneakers as a member of the Atlanta Hawks at the age of 43.
The 6-foot-6 Carter, the 1999 Rookie of the Year, is an eight-time All-Star and an Olympic gold medalist.
